though technology is actually one of the laggards here. up just about 4.75 on nasdaq. we are looking at wins there as well. and the standard & poor's 500 index, also at the high right here with a gain of 0.5%, bill. >> i think we're going to bob pisani, yes? what do you think? 15,000, is this the day? >> we passed it on an intraday basis back on friday, but sell in may, so far, take a look at the dow. we're up 1.25% so far in the month of may. now, remember, last may, last year, we were down overall for the month. so far, we're doing pretty darn good here. maria's right, people look at the sectors, energies, materials, industrials, these are the cyclicals that have been powering us forward for the last week and a half, again, positive, and the techs are having a break. what's weighing on the dow are the techs. so hewlett, microsoft, cisco were all weak. ibm is up. but, boy, apple's been up 17% in the last couple of weeks. google's been really strong. so all these high-flying techs are starting to take a little bit of a break. that's certainly not surprising. how about the transportat

implementing technology that would enable us to check those documents quickly and make sure that somebody was secure. that's license plate readers, and the primary systems. the implementation of that this hundreds of much of dollars but it dramatically change the border. we now query over 90% of all people crossing the land border. we have reduced fraudulent document attempts. we've increased arrests and to increase security without slowing down the traffic. >> let me quick move on because the want to ask one more basic question. when secretary napolitano was before us very early, two years ago, i asked her, you have enough resources? what would it cost to secure the border? she said she had enough resources. i'm not quite sure of that, so i don't know, is it a matter of resources? secondly, have you ever been tasked with the job of saying this is what we need to do to secure the border? come up with a plan to if we need more offense, how many miles of fence we have to build, this is how high it needs to be, this is how it needs to be constructed. this is how many boots we need o

that are hand-held are mounted on trucks. me to systematically identify the best technologies with your help and those of your colleagues, we will make a front-line agents more effective and provide them with help that they need to be more successful in a cost-effective way. one specific thing i have seen firsthand is that an aircraft without an advanced radar system on board to help detect illegal activity on the ground is of very little value. far too many of the aircraft were deployed in support of the border patrol are not fitted with cameras are sensors that have been proven effective. last week i visited a place where find three different types of helicopters and only one of those is out with the kind of technologies. yet the two allies and ineffective. we have to be smarter than this. by comparison, in arizona i sign inexpensive single engine airplane that had been fitted with an advanced infrared radar camera system which had proven to be extremely effective and inexpensive to operate. however, the border patrol has 16 more of these aircraft that don't have any advanced sen

time is running out. i could probably do something. a lot of technology and stuff up in the air in a different kind of way. ports of entry reverted to develop that. tacking up 3500 new officers at ports of entry. tell us about how this officers might be deployed. what are some of the longest crossing delays on the southwest border and how much can we hope to reduce those? who would like to take a shot at that quick >> thank you, chairman. farmer acting commissioner for field operations and senator johnson's question if we've asked whether we need reserves rise to secure and facilitate trade and travel is the resource optimization strategy we committed at the 14 budget and they would be deployed on the greatest need determined by the workload by the enforcement results in greater facilities and also nescafÉ combined formula and we had some significant challenges. air traffic for three years and was expected to hit the market again in the wait times have grown commiserate with that. even non-literally above the track growth. we have an infrastructure at the airports and the wait times

lost in instant technology that empowers us to leverage our skills as never before, but also allows us to retreat from the world. the result is that we sometimes forget the larger bonds we share as one american family. but it is still out there. all the time. every day. especially when we need it most. just look at the past year. when a hurricane struck our mightiest city, and a factory exploded in a small town in texas, we saw citizenship. when bombs went off in boston and when a malevolent spree of gunfire visited a movie theater, , aemple, an ohio high school first grade classroom in connecticut, we saw citizenship. of darkestrmath tragedy, we have seen the american spirit at its brightest. we have seen the petty divisions of color and class and creed replaced by a united urge to help each other. we have seen courage and compassion, a sense of civic duty and a recognition, we are not a collection of strangers, we are bound to one another by a set of ideals and laws and commitments. and a deep devotion to this country that we love. and that is what citizenship is. it is at the heart

ghettoized? my concern is that not everyone is clearly going to be involved in technological advance. for instance, i am glad to hear there is certainly the partnership with beginotec with the last presenter and they should be involved. i am fuzzy while these are great micro-businesses that are moving women further away from poverty is there a gap that is occurring in terms of the trends of the types of businesses and where business and industry is headed now? which maybe i am overinflating, over estimating, but it seems they're divergent paths in terms of womens' interaction with technology, tech lolg cal -- technological advances. are there small businesses, micro-businesses for instance that women are leading, starting that move beyond the hierarchy of the types of businesses that were described? do we have women that are involved in starting something that is a cottage industry so to speak of a ginotech? any other technology companies? >> yeah. good question. actually i think maybe the way i would answer that is when someone askings to describe a small business there isn't an que
